    But does it work? Yes, it does. And it provides better quality than the cameras' internal recording, but IMO it's not worth the time spent getting there when modern 4K cameras are available for little money that will provide the same or better quality.
    Yes sure modern cameras. But what I like about 5d raw is the color and image. How much better than internal recording? Anybody has measured how much resolution it resolves with 4K raw?

    How much more? Can't find any tests or info on actual resolved lines of the 4K raw.

    I have only worked with the 1080p RAW... It creates a very nice image. As for the 4k, it seems like it is a bridge too far for that era camera imho.

    Just use your eyes and brain. If it looks good, who cares? You know?

    Like what kind of outcome would you come to after measuring ALEXA's 'actual resolved lines' of resolution?

    It doesn't matter; there is more to an image than all of these numbers people are always thinking about (resolution, bits, color space, bitrate).

    It does if you need to deliver a proper 4K image. I'm sure it's a gorgeous 1080p image, but can it pass for 4K ?

    If you're in a position having to deliver a 'proper' 4K image to your superiors then you're highly unlikely to be using a hacked [and potentially unstable] stills camera for video.

    When you add in a shooting time of 8 seconds, it seems like the perfect camera.

    Is important because if it's HD then there are also other options to consider. I must know. But not even cinema5D tested. Can't find test or review. Strange.
